That was tough !
I've limited each band to just one pick. Also, strangely one of my favourites, RAMMSTEIN didn't make the cut.

MORTIIS - SMELL OF RAIN (maybe not my absolute favourite, but has huge significance for me)

BLONDIE - PARALLEL LINES (1st lp with my own money in 78)

DEPECHE MODE - MUSIC FOR THE MASSES (v v v hard to pick just one)

IRON MAIDEN - BRAVE NEW WORLD (as above)

MUSE - BLACK HOLES AND REVELATIONS

NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS - MURDER BALLADS

NINE INCH NAILS - AND ALL THAT COULD HAVE BEEN (live)

PJ HARVEY - RID OF ME

SNEAKER PIMPS - BECOMING X

STONE SOUR - HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES Pt 2 (their latest, but they keep getting better)

Hi John,

My fav Crowded House track is no doubt 'Sister Madly', from 'Temple of Low Men', but as an album it's Woodface all the way!

i preferred their follow up, ..

for some reason every time I try and post a list it's triggering the spam filter. Guess it doesn't like my list!?

Too many Katie Melua albums? Try now, should be fixed.

Thanks John

In no particular order:

Suede - Dog Man Star

U2 - Achtung Baby (Zooropa a close second)

The Cure - Disintigration

Massive Attack - Mezannine

David Bowie - Outside

Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon

Damien Rice - O

Prince - Sign of the Times

Tori Amos - To Venus & Back (Live disc)

REM - Up

Really tough question - If I asked my self the same question next week I'd probably give a different answer!

I'm assuming you've never heard Together Alone? That was Crowded House's swansong and their real masterpiece. Nearly every song was brilliant.
